Looks like your mopac is not working correctly. Note that the FOR006 output
file just has one line of "***" characters, no real output. Hence the error:

It's not clear what you did, however. You should check that mopac was
actually compiled and installed without problems, and should look for any
error messages that might be generated when you run it by hand. For sure, run
the test cases: if they work, you just need to figure out what is different
between your input and that of the test cases; if they fail, then we know it
is an installation problem and not an input problem.
